On Tuesday 15 January, Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal was rejected by 230 votes - the largest defeat for a sitting government in history. So what happens next?

This Breakfast Briefing will be led by Ros Kellaway, who heads the Eversheds Sutherland Brexit team. Ros will be joined by Adam Ferguson, Head of Competition, Asia. They will examine the implications of the vote, the prospects for Brexit, and the practical implications for Hong Kong businesses and investors with interests in the UK.
